Clerihews: A Martyr, a Papabili, and a Painter

As a youth St. Polycarp 
religiously practiced the harp. 
When a musical career proved a non-starter 
he instead became a martyr.

Boston's Cardinal Sean 
suddenly woke before dawn 
and prayed, "Oh Lord, I hope 
you don't want me to be the next pope. 

The folksy paintings of President Bush 
Don’t show his tush. 
But the subtlety and skill they lack 
do help to explain Iraq.

Pax et bonum
